CHORUS

(RE)                        DO        
So I remember when: we were driving, driving in your car,
    SOL
The speed so fast I felt like I was drunk,
MIm               
City lights lay out before us
         RE
And your arm felt nice wrapped 'round my shoulder. 
    DO MIm         RE 
And I       had a feeling that I belonged
    DO MIm         RE                 
And I       had a feeling I could be someone
MIm         RE           
be someone,    be someone.
